Give a Wag! Gives to Grand Junction Shelters

Grand Junction's largest and oldest animal shelter in operation today is the Roice Hurst Humane Society, rescuing animals in need since 1963! Every year, they find loving homes for hundreds of animals and never euthanize animals due to lack of space or resources. Every animal brought through their doors that is healthy or treatable will be taken in with open arms, cared for, and rehomed to a loving family, no matter how long it takes! 

Thanks to assistance from dedicated, animal-loving volunteers, Roice-Hurst is able to engage in extensive community outreach, low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics, animal rehoming, and lost and found pet programs. The shelter works their hardest to strengthen the bond between animals and people in their local community, offering educational classes, animal behavior consultations, training, post-adoption counselling, and more!

Graceland Animal Rescue, founded in 2014, is a foster-based animal rescue that relies on animal lovers throughout the community to take in the dogs they rescue, providing tender loving care until they can be placed in their forever homes. The organization was created in loving memory of the founders' sweet dog Gracie, who they rescued from scheduled euthanasia at a west coast kill shelter. Gracie faced several health challenges after being rescued and despite all of her fight and courage and the relentless vet care she received, she passed away from a fatal case of Canine Distemper. Nonetheless, Gracie's memory lives on and was the inspiration that caused this rescue to form. 

Graceland Animal Rescue saves animals from crowded kill shelters and accepts pet surrenders from the local community, determined to provide loving care for dogs of all ages, breeds, and health states. Fueled by compassion and community involvement, Graceland Animal Rescue has saved and rehomed more than 250 dogs and they are just getting started!
